So, Governor. How'd All That Praying Shit Work Out For You?

So, Governor. How'd All That Praying Shit Work Out For You?
http://governor.state.tx.us/news/proclamation/16038/

Quote:OW, THEREFORE, I, RICK PERRY, Governor of Texas, under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and Statutes of the State of Texas, do hereby proclaim the three-day period from Friday, April 22, 2011, to Sunday, April 24, 2011, as Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas. I urge Texans of all faiths and traditions to offer prayers on those days for the healing of our land, the rebuilding of our communities and the restoration of our normal way of life.

Quote:Drought has spread over much of the South this year, setting records from Louisiana to New Mexico. But the situation is especially severe in Texas, the nation's second-largest agriculture state behind California.

Quote:At this point, Texas would need more than 4.5 inches of rain in the next two months to avoid breaking the 1956 record for driest 12 consecutive months.

So it seems that Perry was so busy listening to 'god' tell him to run for president that he missed the part where 'god' told him to stick his prayers up his ass.

My Gov did it too. I wish they would get off of the face of this planet. Sean Parnell, Palin with a vagina.

This proves prayer does not work. Not that it needed more proof.

That "hoping mumbling incoherently will cause water not present in the air to come down as rain" shit probably did increase the number of evengelicals who would vote for him either in his reelection or his presidential campaign, so the real prayer behind his prayer probably worked, although not through any intervention by the supernatural.

BTW, how do you think the world's opinion of the faith and credit of the people of the united states, who are supposedly the ultimate source of power in the country, would change knowing we elected to put the finger of a rain dancing buffoon on 50% of the world's deployed nuclear weapon stockpile?

RE: So, Governor. How'd All That Praying Shit Work Out For You?
In my mind, this shit I see is CRAZY. How do these people get to where they are? I don't fucking get it. How can anyone be so stupid ill informed and irrational. How can people not THINK?

I'm always thinking, always wondering, always trying to find out the reasons for things, because everything does have a reason.
Does Rick Perry really believe his own drivel... or is he a sociopath, which basically means the lesser ability to feel empathy.

Could no ability to feel empathy be a major force in why these people act the way they do? Along with just being ignorant sheep.
Logically I can see no other way but that they genuinely don't care about other people, and that is due to a difference in brain wiring, where whatever controls the ability to feel "bad" or empathy seems to be disconnected or does not work to its full potential. Then people who have 0 ability end up to be the serial killers and people of that type.

The brain amazes me and so does the human condition... I always try to figure people out when I first meet them, and most of the time I get it pretty good. Does anyone else just "sense" "bad" people?
It may be the way the walk, they way they talk, you can tell the manipulators over the ignorant. But the manipulators control the ignorant by keeping them ignorant, but they themsslves are not ignorant, just using the ignorance of others to gain more for them selves... something I think empathy would stop.

Psychopath? Of course he is a psychopath. Calvinism based evengelical Christianity basically condenses down to "psychopathy is the new empathy". Who could pander to population steeped in this creed without being a psychopath himself?

This whole prayer thing was just posturing for his presidential campaign. It was his way of saying to the religious right, "Vote for me because I love God."

Which is kind of amazing, really.

I say we think that & tell everyone else that God just hates neo-cons.
